We were able to interview Coach Trotta for this month. We told him he would be famous and he told us he already is famous! We were surprised by some of the things we learned about him. Especially about what he told us about chickens and when we asked him if he always wears shorts he said he only wears pants to church. We couldn’t include everything he told us. He likes to talk a lot.
